As soon as Sarah Wickers could wander, she experienced a pocket full of seeds.

Wickers is the qualified botanist and photographer guiding Perfectly Seasoned Desk, a Candler-centered source for seasonings and teas packed with substances wildcrafted or grown in Appalachia. 

That incorporates the Paw Paw sugar that, alongside with Wickers’ Smoked Bloody Mary Seasoning and Toasted Okra Sea Salt, not long ago landed her seasoning firm in Flavor of the South magazine’s yearly Taste 50 feature. 

It all started when Wickers’ father, who owned a native plant nursery in Florida, would fill her pockets with seeds destined for cultivation.

“It can be mainly because of him I have had a enjoy of plants from early phases,” she mentioned. “I was generally subsequent to him in the nursery assisting him do no matter what.”
